Cirey-sur-Blaise Castle - Tourism in the Haute-Marne

Nestling at the heart of the peaceful Blaise Valley at the borders of Lorraine, Cirey-sur-Blaise Castle, a listed Historic Monument, is famous for having been the home of the celebrated philosopher Voltaire from 1734 to 1749. He was invited there by Gabrielle Émilie de Breteuil, Marquise du Châtelet. It was a place of refuge and "heaven on earth" for the politically committed writer who was threatened with incarceration following the publication of his Philosophical Letters. He restored and enlarged this Louis XIII-style residence, adding a gallery with a splendid sculpted door, dedicated to the arts and sciences. Take a guided tour and discover the drawing rooms, dining room, library, kitchen, chapel, the marquise's room, and the little theatre where Voltaire liked to rehearse his plays!
